So far so good...

I l.o.v.e. holiday weekends.

Wow. I bet that came as a shocker, huh? But, really. Everyone is laid back and spending time with family. Everyone is eating... alot. Definitely right up my alley! But, the reason why my heart is singing this weekend is because I have been able to wake up to my hubby snoring laying next to me 2 days in a row.

See Jeff has a fantastic job. His employers are great people who take good care of us. However, one downfall is he works most, if not every, Saturday. Boo.

We have spent alot of time with the girls, hanging with my in-laws, and of course a few landscaping projects so far this weekend. I feel like I have talked til I am blue in the face about our home projects and as soon as one ever gets completed I will be sure to document. But, we have our eggs in alot of baskets- so to speak.

So far so good...

Here are a few pictures to sum up the first part of our holiday weekend....

we took Ayla swimming thanks to our awesome neighbors! she is really a fish this year!

Mommy got the gumpshun to pump, so Leah took her first bottle! She did amazingly well. Piggy ate it Way too quick so most of it came back up, but great first effort. I have a couple shifts coming up soon plus dance picks back up in the summer...

We are always trying to get pics of the Owens grandkids when Ridge is home. But its hard with nursing times, nap times, time out times... ha I got a couple cute ones in the few minutes I snapped, you can see no one looks thrilled I am making them do this. Britt you have your work cut out for you. But it works.... Fischer 8, holding Ridge 10 mo, Ayla 2, Wyatt 4, holding Leah 5.5 weeks.

Looking forward to another day of time with my husband, my girls, and the rest of our family :)

Ok so you had me laughing with the "plus I love choc chip cookies" That's my girl right there, I'm completely in the same boat. I'm on a mission now to get it all off though. When I'm running, it's like WHOA that wouldn't move before?!? So yeah...something's gotta give :) Glad you were able to spend some extra time with Jeff and have a great Memorial Day (rain or not!)

So wonderful! Life just doesn't get better than this does it?! I'm hoping that we'll make it out to your area on Wednesday or Friday for pictures. It would be great to finally meet, I feel like I've known you for months at this point!

Courtney...I haven't decided on try-outs. It would be really nice to have 22 dancers this year...I might just wait to see if any of them stick out during the summer.

Also...we should get our 2 lil princesses together sometime.

Talk to you later

Ayla is such a big girl. Is she swimming at the "resort" next door. I'm assuming the pool was heated as she has a huge smile on her face instead of "I'm freezing" look. Oh the innocence of our children!
